Inheritance of leaf shape and pod pubescence in fenugreek (Trigonella foenum-graecum L.)

Published on

Pod pubescence and leaf shape in fenugreek (Trigonella
foenum-graecum L.) could be used as prominent
morphological markers in genetic studies. The study on
mode of inheritance revealed that pubescence on pods is
determined by a single dominant gene. The gene symbol
is proposed to designate the pubescence. Similarly the
acute tip of the leaf is governed by a single dominant gene,
which is designated as At. Considering both the traits
together i.e., round leaf vs acute leaf and glabrous vs
pubescent leaf, the genetic study revealed that both the
genes inherit independently
